“I want to play for Ghana and it has always been my preference. Right now I am focusing on my club career and when the conversation comes up, I will have it with my family and decide”.

He added that former teammate Kwame Poku spoke good things about Ghana when he was invited to play for the county.

“I spoke to Kwame Poku on how it felt to play for Ghana and he only said nothing but good things. He is a good player and if he can say good things I can too,” Sarpong said.
